Novak Djokovic, the men’s world No 1 tennis player, has tested positive for coronavirus

The world's top-ranked men's tennis player, Novak Djokovic, said on Tuesday that he tested positive for the novel coronavirus after participating in an exhibition series he organized in Serbia and Croatia.

Djokovic, who is Serbian, is the fourth player who participated in matches last week in Belgrade, Serbia's capital and largest city, and in Zadar, Croatia, over the weekend to test positive for COVID-19.

Djokovic's wife also tested positive.

“The moment we arrived in Belgrade we went to be tested. My result is positive, just as Jelena’s, while the results of our children are negative,” he said in a statement.

Djokovic was criticized for bringing in other players from around the world for the tournament.

Three other players, Viktor Troicki, Grigor Dimitrov, and Borna Coric, also tested positive.
